One of the joys of the lockdown period is the opportunity to catch up with box sets. Have you discovered something new (to you) worthy of a binge-watch? Or perhaps you have returned to an old favourite.

If you are in the market for a series recommendation, you could find The IT Crowd a good watch. This 2006 Channel 4 comedy portrays a computer department supporting a large building of office workers. They naturally get into more scrapes than your average IT support technician, but the programme does capture some truths about office life. Who hasn’t called for computer help and been greeted with the response Have you tried turning it off and on again?

The fact is, one of the things that entrepreneurs starting their own businesses miss most from corporate life is being able to pick up the phone for instant IT support. This puts me in mind of a Lenny Henry joke about a young person moving into his first house; working through a checklist, he feels he has forgotten to pack something, then realises what is missing – his Dad with his font of knowledge and handyman skills!

The good news is, just because you no longer work for a large organisation, you don’t have to miss out on the benefit of having IT support at your beck and call. Computer Troubleshooters make having your own IT department a reality for small businesses and charities.

When your company appoints Computer Troubleshooters as your IT support provider, all your computer equipment is monitored, protected and updated and you get access to IT support on demand at the end of the phone. I am sure you will find our team a great deal more helpful and responsive than the IT Crowd too!

If your computers are getting you down and you’re wasting your time spending hours calling helplines, it is time to treat your business to its own IT Department.

Don’t shoot your computers, call the Computer Troubleshooters on 01732 300064
